I've got rosecea too. I use Metrocream and periodically end up on an antibiotic too.
When I talked to my doctor about my huge nose pores, I was surprised when he prescribed Tretinoin (RetinA) because I thought that was a no-no with rosecea. But it's been OK and if my skin starts to dry out too much, I just skip a night with the Tretonin. It's prescription only, though.
